We bring you a new tutorial from our admired Mari Luz, a real Pintypluser, who transforms a rusty old bucket into an attractive industrial style decorative container using Pintyplus products.
- A Bucket
- Galvazinc Primer Pintyplus Tech silver
- Pintyplus Basic black matt
- Decorated napkins
- Water-based varnish Pintyplus matt
These are the steps that followed:
The bucket was a little rusty, so first lightly sand or wire brush the surface and clean with spirit. Then we spray paint the bucket with Galvanizing Pintyplus. This spray is an aluminum-based anticorrosive which prevents possible oxidation of the primer. It is easier to spray if the bucket is placed on a stand to elevate it a little.
Using a ball of foil; dab lightly with black paint to create a rust effect.
Using a stencil template; spray the number onto the side of the bucket in black.
For the lid, use the Galvanzinc spray paint and allow to dry for 30 minutes. Lay on the napkin patterns to create a Decoupage design and trim to size. Then use the foil to continue the rust effect with black paint and allow to dry.
Finish with a layer of varnish over the top of the napkins to protect them.
